Wow! Thanks, Thom. This is a great research guide. (Why didn't I put up a post like this?)

Thom

No thanks are necessary, M. You're hosting the 'Thon; I'm just spreading the word. Looking forward to it, fellow cinephile.

I'll add Facets here in Chicago to this fine list of resources. Their catalog provides over 70 titles from 1927, and many of them are available to rent via their Netflix-like rental service.

Oh I always blush when you link to me! I'm so all over this! i just checked and it turns out I've written 12 reviews for films made in 1927 film. Thom how in heck are you gonna chose just one?! I have the suspicion you'll be doing the technical side... that way you can enjoy several... hmmm... Along your studies of this year's films, might I suggest a viewing of the 'out there, wacky, twisted' Lon Chaney's The Unknown? it might not be the bestr the year has to offer but it's sure the most outrageous.

Not to be a pest but a little guide I got many moons ago (1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die) includes the following 1927 films:

Metropolis (1927)
Sunrise (1927)
The General (1927)
The Unknown (1927)
October (1927)
The Jazz Singer (1927)
Napoleon (1927)
The Kid Brother (1927)

Grrreat suggestions, Squish. The Unknown...maybe...Thanks for posting that big list too. Choosing only one will be the problem here indeed. I"ve been planning to post about Napoleon for 1927 but now maybe I'll sneak in a double-post or something like that.

btw, did you notice that you posted a comment at the exact same time as Goatdog's comment above yours from two days ago? Cue cheesy Universal horror film music...oooOOOooh...

I will try my damnest to participate, this sounds terrific.

Thom

I'm looking forward to your damndest take on the subject, Emma. See you there. ;)
